EBC forums: your experience is valuable for our PRO community!

The more difficult situations you experience, the stronger you will be. Because you will learn from it…

There is another way to get prepared to face these…

Things have been hopping ever since!


Lots of beautiful babies born but very few available as we had a lot of families waiting and

Overweight pets - should I be concerned?

Do I need to be worried about my pet being overweight?

The rate of obesity in our pets is increasing, with up to 30% of cats and dogs weighing more than they should.  If there is just a little bit if ‘extra padding’, simply cutting back feeding amounts slightly or increasing exercise may be enough to return your dog or cat to an ideal body condition. 

If your pet is overweight (>10% above ideal body weight) or obese (>30% above ideal body weight) weight…

What does AAFCO mean?

Who is AAFCO?

The Association of American Feed Control Officials, or AAFCO, is the body in the United States that governs pet food packaging and nutritional requirements.

What do I need to know about Lifestage nutrition?


Some pet foods bear the claim that the diet has a nutrient profile that fits all life stages.  In order to meet this requirement, the diet must meet AAFCO requirements for growth.  In other words, an ‘all life stage diet’ is equivalent to a puppy or kitten diet.  The problem with the ‘all life stage’ approach is that growth formulas…
